Uunuivrelcil Dia Hlmfulnr Cmmt ml Krom tbe Itichebter Democrat During the recent noted trial of the three forgers in the Court of Sessions some very interesting facts were brought to light which were only brieflyi touched upon in our report of the proceedings Auioag the most important witnesses was Dr S A Lattitnore professor of chemis try in the University of Rochester Some idea of the nature of the learned profea BOrs testimony has already been given our readers but in order better to place the importance of the matter before the pub lic aud give the information which ifc ia necessary should be given a reporter of the Democrat and Chnnlele held a short interview with Dr hattimore upon the subject The facts gleaned from the con versation will be placed before our readers in condensed form no attempt being made to follow the interriewing style The case bears on the important ques tion of identifying written documents negotiable paper In this pat ticolar case both the drawer of the check and the bank teller who cashed it testified most positively to the genuineness of the signature Hence the natural conclusion would be that the check had been altered by changing tlio face in some way from to Writing materials a variety of pens pencils brushes iuks and several mysterious solutions were found in the poasesskmof the prisoners They were aent to the witness Dr Lattimorejby the prosecuting attorney with the request to make chemical uxamiiiation and ascertain if they could be employed in the mapner suspected Tbe witness testified that he tad analysed all of them and had proven that by their use it was possible to re move writing in ink to re Btore the paper to its original appearance The witness presented to the court ex hibits of checks which had been paid as shown by the bank from which a part of all of the writing had per fectly removed by means of thia fluid found in the possession of the prisoners and the paper was in no respect injured fc The witness evidence so far was strongly in support of the theory above given re garding the raisingof the check But when he came to apply the ippropriate chemical toslu of the check itself to ascer tain whether it had been treated as sus pected or not he discovered that it had not been thus This revulation led him to suspect tho genuineness of the signatura which up to this time had not been queHtiouod by auy one Under the microscope pencil tracings were detected they wero followed through out the whole signature The witness offeredin evidence a photograph of the check in winch the pencil tracings were distinctly reproduced and also pointed out to the judge and jury the tracing on the original seen especU ally by means of a rendingglass The force of this evidence was to discredit evi dence previously given as to the genuine ness of the signature and iead to the con clusion that the original check given by Mr Shedd had never been used but that a new one had been forged on which his signature had bean traced in pencil This explains the probable use of the plate of Klass fixed in an inclined frame found among the effects of the prisoners The defense at this point denied the possibil ity ef removing writing as asserted by the witness and challenged him to repeat 5n presence of the court the test usingthe solutions in question and submitted as the test the check itself asking to hnvo the teat made oh a part of the name of the paper and also on the latter part of the signature Witness took a seat at the table under the oyen of both judge and jury and proceoded with the test demand BL08S VOL TITUSVILLE SATUKDAY MAY 26 1877 NO 4367 the creme de la firstclass cemmerekl in all professions above withpolitical cliquey and large v Hotel proprieton uid keepers perhaps

bartenders as i rule are too fly for m Not long since a party in New York when finally caught iu the ait openly boasted that for over two years he had lived at the finest uptown boarding houses and not paid one cent during that time for board he was gentlemanly in appearance well dressed in possession of fine conversational powers and a regular masher among the ladies his modus operandi was to call at a first class board ing houseengage aparfmentsand before partaking of the ftrst meal inform the landlady that he could not get his bag gage over the ferry that morning f had not arrived at the express afflce yet was dehvyed on the road by etc etc always framing some plausible eicuse soas to gain a foothold and in the interim inaking himself toall the ladies iu the particularly the landlady

meal it is a hard matter to discern lias not registered Still another clasa are one person who those who on stopping at a hotel have a fair showing of baggage but which in reality is worth less this class have many devices such as screwing their trunks to the floor after surreptitiously getting what little clothing they have out of the house filling their valises with anything heavy avail able and somehave gone so far i as to have patent valises made toorder that will double up like a patent dinner pail and after havingput all the clothing it contains on their back after getting two or three days board coolly fold up their valise and pnt it in their pocket takizig the first opportunity to repack it and play the game on a jother liotel Perhaps tho worst annoyance to hotel men are the female beats with which the country is flooded they travel on their winning ways and get into the landlord jefore he knows it and when they are justly punished which is very seldom fall tack on the plea thattheir sex protect ihem Not long since a lady was driven in a hack up to the ladies entrance of onu of our best hotels and was escorted to the ladiesparlor She was dressed in the lieight of fashion but neat and tasty and by no means guady The only article of baggage she hadwith her was a small box neatly wrapped up in manilla paper with a shawlstrap attached by moans of which it was carried This she seemed to handle with great care and requested that it be placed in the private vault of the house and a receipt given for the same She was a bewitch ing blonde ravishing form and a srailo sweefcenongb to melt the heart of a Shy lock She entranced all the boarders spent a pleasant week and one bright morning started but to do a little shop ping1 and for all that her friends in

tip to avert the evil eye Each person is the letters Geo had been written while from the latter part of tha signa ture the ink had totally vanished reveal ing however now tho letters distinctly traced in lead pencil as the witness had suspected experiment was perfectly successful and convincing and left not a shadow of a doubt on the minds of the as to how the check had been man ufactured He was pressed to give the names and chemical composition of the articles ana lyzed and used in these tests He con sented to hand up to the judgeprivately the names of the articles but refused to answer on the ground that by his public testimony ho would be placing a danger ous instrument of crime in the hands of dishonest persons Counsel waived tha question It is a noteworthy fact that by a sort of retributive justice the chemists final and complete demonstvation of tha falsity of tho signature as made in open court in response to the challenge of tha defense was accomplished by the application of the identical solution which the criminals had themselves brought to Rochester to use in perpetrating their frauds on our bankers careful how you swear to your signature How are Meat Frim tbe Hotel
